Anyone at TOD this year is well aware of Buttercup's little tantrum. It was the strangest thing!
Downpipe comes out of the mount, lays on the right hand axle, heats said axle way up, freaks out transmission, transmission goes int safe mode going up a mountain. :(. After some head scratching and elbow grease, pipe relocated, transmission cooled, we're on our way. Shortly thereafter, Flexpipe blows apart leaving us with one noisy Buttercup. I got an aftermarket downpipe from some exhaust place in Canada this week, and installed it today! I've never done exhaust before, but I figured how hard can it be? Now Buttercup no longer sounds like an angry bug! :)

How much was the downpipe; who made it and what was the quality? Please post part numbers and pricing, that way people can find the same part and purchase it, in the future. It is always nice; to have a confirmation, on a quality aftermarket part for the New Beetles. There are so many aftermarket parts out there; it is hard to know what parts are quality! Thanks! :)
